Does my pet need to be spayed or neutered?
We do not require pets to be spayed or neutered! Please take the advice of your family vet on when you should have your pet fixed.
Do you accept reactive dogs?
Yes, I do walk reactive dogs.
Please note, I cannot walk dogs deemed aggressive in group walks.
Dogs can be reactive for many reasons. Reactivity is a spectrum. Please be specific to your dogs behaviour when inquiring for walks. I notice a lot of owners use reactive and aggressive interchangeably and that is simply not the case.
*We are unable to accommodate any aggression.
What methods do you use?
Science-based Positive Reinforcement dog handling. I am an advocate for Fear Free handling methods and want every dog to feel safe and comfortable on walks.
I do not use, or condone the use of: Shock, Prong, Choke Chains or Corrections on dogs.
When do you offer walks?
AM - 10:00-11:00
PM - 12:00-1:00
Pee breaks 12:00-12:20 or 4:00-4:20
Please note, we have an hour pick up window between pick up's and drop off's.
Why do you require a front clip harness?
Simply put, it's the safest way to walk a dog!
A flat clip collar or back clip harness can still cause pressure on the dogs' neck and trachea.
Dogs aren't able to back or wiggle out of a properly fitted front clip! I'm well aware of the stigma of these harnesses being marketed as a "no pull tool" however this is not the reason I require front clips.
